LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Revolve Group, Inc. (NYSE: RVLV), the next-generation fashion retailer for Millennial and Generation Z consumers, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a stock repurchase program of up to $100 million of its Class A common stock.
“Our cash flow generation and strong balance sheet afford us the financial flexibility to authorize a stock repurchase program as part of our efforts to enhance stockholder value while continuing to invest in exciting growth opportunities ahead,” said co-founder and co-CEO Mike Karanikolas. “While the current economic environment remains challenging, the $100 million repurchase program underscores our confidence in our opportunity for continued profitable growth and market share capture over the long-term,” said co-founder and co-CEO Michael Mente.
Repurchases under the program will be funded from REVOLVE’s existing cash and cash equivalents or future cash flow. As of June 30, 2023, REVOLVE had $269 million in cash and cash equivalents and no debt. During the four years since REVOLVE’s initial public offering in June 2019, net cash provided by operating activities has exceeded $215 million on a combined basis, driving a significant increase in cash and equivalents compared to the $45 million in cash and cash equivalents on REVOLVE’s balance sheet of as June 30, 2019.
Under the repurchase program, REVOLVE may purchase shares of its Class A common stock on a discretionary basis from time to time through open market repurchases, privately negotiated transactions or other means, including through Rule 10b5-1 trading plans. The timing and amount of any stock repurchases will depend on factors such as REVOLVE’s stock price, trading volume, economic and market conditions, alternative uses of capital and corporate and regulatory requirements, and the program does not require REVOLVE to repurchase any specific number of shares of Class A common stock. The program has no expiration date but it may be modified, suspended or terminated at any time.
